Armenia Must Always Be Ready for War

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–Armenian Defense Minister Serge Sargsian said Tuesday that Armenia–like any other country–must always be prepared for war.

"The Defense Minister of any country–the Armenian Defense Minister in particular–must realize that military operations may start at any moment," said Sargsian in response to a question about whether or he foresees a chance of war.

Regarding the increased ceasefire violations along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border zone–the Defense Minister said that today’s situation is no different from the previous situation. "There have always been shots fired–and even if there is a difference–the situation has become milder," he added.
